What do you need to know about brickwork pointing or repointing?
‘Pointing’ is the external layer of mortar used when building a brick wall. Over time gaps can start to appear in these joints, which can start to let water through, and so a repointing job may be necessary. It is important to have your property assessed for perspective repointing work. There are several different joint styles available which only certain businesses may offer. The cost of repointing will usually be measured in square meters, taking into account jobs such as raking out the old pointing and cleaning the bricks. For larger jobs scaffolding may be required, in which case it is likely that your pointing tradesman will be able to arrange it himself.
With all tradesmen it is important to check their qualifications and experience. Are they used to working on properties similar to yours, and do they have positive customer feedback? If they need to bring in scaffolding how will this affect your quote? Especially for dangerous jobs involving scaffolding it is important to check that your tradesmen are adequately covered for accidental damage and liabilities, and that they have a guarantee in place for if you are unsatisfied with their finished work.
